Last year, David Lebovitz posted a recipe for Peanut Butter Paprika Cookies from Lisa Ludwinski's Sister Pie. It was one of those recipes that was so immediately appealing that I mentally checked off the ingredients as I read it. I had everything the recipe called for and I set off to the kitchen, anticipating eating the cookies within the hour. That's when I read more carefully and saw that the dough needs to sit for at least 24 hours or up to 3 days. My heart fell. I did make them and they were utterly delicious. But who can routinely wait 24+ hours to satisfy their cookie cravings? And how many cookies should anyone eat anyway? I've since funneled the spirit of the cookie into my morning toast, and I have to say, it is pretty awesome. —Emily
